Android Question Canvas.RemoveClip with API28 and B4A version 8.50


Licensed User

Manifest now needs targetSDKversion set to 28 for an APK to be published.

My B4A version is 8.50 and I face this compatibility issue described in this old post when using "Canvas.RemoveClip" (in Gauge):

Erel replied : "It is related to a new restriction in Android 9. It will only happen if you set targetSdkVersion to 28. For now you should set it to 26."

Is there any way to bypass this issue now we have no possibility to stay with API26 ?
Do you confirm if I upgrade to B4A 9.3 my problem will be solved ?

Thanks !
